is this crime being investigated by Special Branch?
and best of luck
only 5 ?
I've worked on very highly available systems, where the sort of downtime offered by 99.999% uptime seems like a summer break holiday. Some environments (blue light, city trading) need much higher availability....take a look at the HP NonStop range for the sort of kit that underpins this sort of thing....it simply Will...Not....Stop....
And if you're using something like Skype, then the VOIP traffic itself should be heavily encrypted anyway
"In addition, if you were really clever, you could have the hydrogen gradually empty from the balloon into the rocket tank with rising altitude and use if extra flight time."
But you'd maybe need to burden LOHAN with some tanked oxygen to burn that Hydrogen...would there be sufficuent oxygen at that height to combust the hydrogen
"Charlie Gilmour got 16 months for swinging on a flag during student protests"
But you fail to mention that the flag was on a war memorial, which makes his actions all the more reprehensible.
Looking at the statue's pose...
...this is the 2nd article today (Microsoft shops one is the other) which involves "camping outside"
the obvious name
it has to be ELTON (it's a rocket, man)
waiting for the MS haters to come along here
So...this is a new non-Windows version from Skype - the company which, when it was bought by Microsoft, everyone said would kill off non-WIndows versions.
a good move
I approve of anything that stops that annoying Go Compare bloke appearing on my tellybox every 10 minutes
an equal opportunities employer
Judging by the replies from the man in question, it's good to see that she was prepared to employ someone for whom Engish isn't his first language.
Are you taking the piss?
Heed Prominent Caption....the title of the article tells all
Airwave spun out of O2 ages ago - it's a completely separate company, although there may be some commonality in the network (e.g. shared cable runs)
Nah....Mavin The Martian has just left the kettle boiling for too long
RE: What sort of block has 666624 IP addresses?
errr...a big one?
I think it's meant to read...
The title is required, and must contain letters and/or digits
targetted advertising isn't rocket science
got what he deserved
serves him right - it's a horrible "sport"
> we're not sure quite what Mr Paul Williams does when he's not dispensing cash to lucky winners
I think he's the guy who markets a range of rice and cook-in sauces
fare thee well
Thanks for all your work on El Reg - best of luck in the new job. You'll be missed
the other Fail
There's plenty talk about the numptiness of not making backups, so I won't add anything on that score
In addition to that though, by the sounds of it the machine was in plain view and the miscreant ne'er-do-well only had to break a window to get at it. If it had been locked away securely then maybe we wouldn't be having this conversation at all.
...Get a life.
There - fixed that for you
makes sense really
if you're stupid enough to fall for on eof these schemes then you're likely not smart enough to spend an hour contemplating whether it's legit or not.
"the ZX Spectrum - Clive Sinclair's one genuine runaway success in a lifetime of developing tech products"
...yeah...that pocket calculator thing never really amounted to much did it?
RE: google maps
good idea - do you want to foot the bill for getting them to fly an o-demand photographic mission and updating the imagery on the google maps/earth server this afternoon?
I'm suprised nobody has commented...
...on the fact that in StreetView mode, on the inset map instead of the little SV man there's a Penguin. Ahh...cute.....etc....
You took the words out of my mouth.
Got a Sansa Clip+ 8GB myself and it does the job very tidily for not a lot of money (plus not a lot more money for a 16GB microSDHC to hold more music)
And no iTunes
@Psmiffy / Weapons, etc.
Been done - benzedrine was regularly used by commandos and air crew during WW2.

"military payload of rockets to carry out bombing missions"
Personally, I would have thought that a payload of bombs would be more appropriate for a bombing mission.
"seagoing Guard have "substantially boosted our deterrence and destruction capabilities"
So when they next capture some Royal Navy personnel, they can steal their iPads as well as their iPods
there may be a case for sexual harrassment...
...but will it stand up in court?
I hadn't realised that Samsung's system was called Bada.
That makes me wonder if they should have gone with Microsoft rather than Yahoo....that would have given us Bada Bing
OK...I'll go now
"land his employers with a hefty $86.9m repair bill."
"required $2.3m in repairs"
I've been to some dodgy garages in my time, but a markup of $84.6m on a job?????
well I never...
...a dishonest bank employee...who'd've thought it?
Nobody from the Dell marketing department has ever been to Aberdeen methinks
...that is all
"gasoline from a canister in a luggage locker was inflamed by sparks from a nearby motorcycle battery"
Two objects which I have never felt the need to take with me as carry-on....maybe I just lead a boring life
sub 25 metre asteroids
I suspect that those sub 25 metre (not meter, as you say) started as >25 metre asteroids before our atmosphere subjected them to some extreme weight-loss
Not so much cookie monster, as monster cookie?
pooh-poohed the rectum bomb

seeing as nobody else has mentioned this....
...I'd like to point out that Parmesan Dagger would be an excellent name for a rock band
...will somebody please make an original film that isn't a remake of a previous version or a re-imagining of something that's already appeared as a TV series or comic.
makes a change...
...from losing my luggage
Bad capitalisation in title
When I first read that headline I thought, "well I don;' live in Ratemy, so I don't see why that would be relevant to me"
Units, you nit!
"equivalent to the facility being rammed by an aircraft carrier"
Not a standard unit of measurement - how much is that in London Buses?
@ Oliver Jones
[WinXP] only consumes about 100MB of memory when idle
100MB...now that seem slike a lot to me....

Been with FD for about 15 years now and I don't think I can fault them. They're one of a very, very small number of companies that I'happily endorse and recommend to other people.
